My seventy-five year old mother and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Bemidji Minnesota for two nights starting on Saturday, February 14th, 2009. When making our reservations online, we requested a room on the top floor, away from the elevator and road noise, but we received a room on the main floor near the lobby, elevator and front door. They apologized that they did not receive our request and told us that the hotel was all booked up, so no room changes could be made. We found that there was plenty of parking, both front and back, but a limited amount of winter plug-ins for the car.
The well lit medium-sized room included two very low and hard double beds, each with four pillows on them, a clock radio, one comfy chair, one office-type chair with a table/desk, a large television with plenty of channels (including some from Canada) and a remote, a mini-refrigerator, and an iron/ironing board in the closet area.
The medium-sized bathroom included three sets of towels, a hairdryer, a coffeemaker, bottles of shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and mouthwash, as well as a bar of soap and lens cleaner for glasses. There was a handle at the back of the shower that my mother was able to use to get in and out of with ease.
The hotel is across the street from the Paul Bunyan Mall and other shopping, as well as some restaurants.
Despite the fact that the walls and ceilings were rather thin, the guests staying at the hotel were very quiet, so any worries we had about not getting the room we wanted turned out okay.
After taxes, the American Automobile Association rate per night for Room 116 averaged $110.00 U.S. Funds. Overall, we were very comfortable in the room as it was clean, but the beds were rather well used and need to be replaced as soon as possible.
